Food here taste pretty close as in Japan. I had Gyudon (Beef slice on top of rice bowl). Beef is very tender, but they serve with raw egg as in Japan, so be aware of it.

I went 3 time and I can only say that is the best Japanese I've ever tried! Fresh fish, enveloping flavor, perfect rice and smiling and solar chef, despite the heat and hectic work.Unique and unrepeatable experience. Price are proportionate to the quality. Recommended!

I went there for dinner after seeing a Michelin recommendation sticker on the door. The outside makes this restaurant look very normal. When I finally returned, I was surprised by how full it was, just 10 minutes after reopening for dinner. The sushi is a must try (if you sit at the bar, you get to see the chef make... More

A very small restaurant which requires booking if you are going in a group. Tight bookings due to limited private rooms upstairs. Lots of privacy if you are with friends which is great. Nothing posh and good if are dining alone too. For a small jap restaurant they have fresh sashimi with very good cut! Not chunky like other Chinese... More

We've visited Japan last year, and since then, the only restaurant we want to eat sushi in Luxembourg is at this place. Very authentic, absolutely fresh fish and prices are ok.

I am deeply impressed by the size and great variety of my assorted sashimi rice from the lunch menu, the restaurant is being very generous! The taste of the marinated rice can certainly be better. The salad dressing for the starter is bit too salty. The staff here are super friendly!

It's bigger on the inside!!! I went there with group of friends, and although the restaurant is present in Luxembourg for over 30 years, for me it was the first time. The food was excellent, high quality, freshly prepared by chef. And the service - friendly and entertaining. The place itself is easy to miss - tiny doors hide a... More

for Luxembourg this is one of the only japanese restaurant that will serve you correct sushi.Don't expect to find cheese, bacon and other stuff, but traditional and small portions, good quality ( it depends of the days :) rolls. But my preference here goes for the hot plates like Udons, guydons, katsudons etc. But again, it depends. In Paris a... More

If you want to have a good Japanese meal, head to Yamayu without hesitation. Sushi is excellent but you can also find a lot of other interesting Japanese dishes. The interior is not sophisticated or renewed recently, but this is something one has to get used to in Luxembourg:) oh, and service is incredibly sweet and friendly!

Thank Aimere
